Very sorry to hear that. I unfortunately never had the pleasure of meeting the man.

My condolences also to Henry, Jr. and the rest of the family.

I did have the pleasure of meeting Henry Sr. at Laticrete's 50 birthday party in Orlando a few years back. Actually, I didn't really meet him, but I was there when Henry Jr. ushered him in, and I did say hello.

Every once in a while you run into somebody really special, and Henry Rothberg was one of those people. Had an idea and pursued it. Created a product and a company that is now world-wide.

My condolences to Henry Jr., David and the rest of the family.

To say that Dr. Rothberg was one of the greatest men I personally knew would be a gross understatement. This man was larger than life. He accomplished in one lifetime what it would take most men TEN lifetimes to accomplish, with nothing but a vision, and the ambition to see it through. If you ever met him, you'd never forget it. He'll be sorely missed.
